The beauty of this yoghurt cake recipe from cronut inventor Dominique Ansel is that the main measuring tool is a simple yogurt cup.

Yogurt cake is every French child’s first foray into the world of baking, thanks to its easy-to-remember ratio of one-two-one: one single-serve yogurt cup, to two cups of flour, one cup sugar. “Growing up in France, every kid learned how to make this easy yogurt cake,” Ansel writes. “All you need is a container of yogurt and a few pantry staples, and you use the yogurt container as a measuring cup for the other ingredients.

It’s a classic, no-fail recipe that makes for a great weekend project with the kids. The yogurt cake recipe is featured in his upcoming cookbook “Everyone Can Bake,” out in the US April 14 2020.
